If you are reading this book because you think it will be a "cookbook" of Low Magick like all the other dusty tomes out there, don't bother. Just read it! Let Lon pull you into his world and then simply enjoy it. Very rarely do I laugh out loud when I read a book on Magick but I have several times with this book. Give yourself a break from the scholarship that we usually have with these types of books, it's a mini-vacation, but it's all in your head.

Lon Milo DuQuette's latest memoir is as entertaining, yet less technical than My Life with Spirits. There are similar stories, which make for interesting comparison, such as his exorcism of a Catholic Girls' School. While it is entertaining, he describes his methods in such a way that gives a working magician some direction in how he addressed certain problems and an indication of how others might tackle the same. It is not a manual of magick per se, but written between every line in the book is a helpful piece of advice: "It works for me, find what works for you."

Lon Duquette has written a book so clear in its exposition and so engaging and conversational in style as to make a frightfully obtuse subject clear even to the reader for whom the concepts are entirely new, even strange. While "Low Magic: It's All in Your Head" is by no means a technical manual, better than any other work I have read it answers clearly and effectively the question "What is low magick really all about?"

There are probably as many answers to that question as there are magicians, but the best I've encountered - as this work makes clear - is that it is an exploration of the darker corners of the subconscious mind, undertaken with a view toward transforming the personal demons of doubt, fear, lust and anger (among others) that assail the individual and keep him from living up to his potential - through the force of the trained and disciplined will - into promoters of growth and wholeness. The means of this transformation is the work of magick. No one ever said it better than Eliphas Levi, an adept if ever there was one, in his poem "The Magician:"

"Their faces and their shapes are terrible and strange,
These devils by my might to Angels I will change.
These nameless horrors I address without affright,
On them will I impose my will, the law of light."

This is the aim of low magick. Are the demonic creatures who populate its world real? Yes, says the author: they are, because they can be experienced. Do these thought forms have or are they capable of assuming an independent, semi-sentient existence? Opinion is divided but that really doesn't matter: they may fail the "lamp test" (i.e., they cannot knock over a table lamp) but they can certainly make the soul they bedevil knock over a lamp.

until you read it. Lon Milo Duquette's "Low Magick" not only frankly and humorously shares the ups and downs of a ceremonial magician's path, but does so with grace, style, and with a broader tone that can be appreciate by a variety of aspirants/magicians/initiates. Thanks Lon!:)

In "Low Magick" Lon Milo DuQuette gives us something unique in occult literature: a sense that magick is not just a set of bizarre operations and heady abstractions, but a Path that real, stable individuals walk. (For a certain value of "stable.") This isn't another instruction manual in a market already glutted with such, but a memoir of a life lived exploring the less traveled byways of the human psyche.

That said, there is actually quite a bit of "tech" in "Low Magick," much of it concerning ways of doing magick on the fly. There is a delightful "quickie" invocation of Ganesha. In the course of an exorcism, DuQuette transfers his Circle from his home to the location by wrapping the cord used to demarcate it around his body, under his clothing. His more elaborate Workings include the use of the mythology behind the plants mentioned in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" to remove a curse.

But a bit of "tech" that is only mentioned once is also the main reason this book will stand, not only as an inspirational work for aspiring occultists, but an important document in the history of magick: the magical diary. Had DuQuette not faithfully kept a record of his Workings, his dreams, and his life in magick, it is likely that he would not have been able to share his experiences in such depth. In doing so, he has given us a snapshot of the mindset of a working mage.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to do more than learn the nuts and bolts of magick, but also draw inspiration from a life dedicated to it.

Enjoyable collection of stories from this long time Thelemite. I found the Our Lady of Sorrows chapter quite fascinating where Mr DuQuette seems to encounter the 333 current, or in the jargon of occult mythos, Choronzon and the subsequent chaotic energies the "demon" brings to the table, these negative forces often manifesting themselves in a series of eerie and often terrible synchronizations and "coincidences". This book is refreshing in the sense that it is not yet another "how to" book in a market saturated with such. Mr. DuQuette has a good sense of humor and relates the stories to the reader in a personable way. I look forward to reading more of his biographical work.
